Ayon Epsilon Monoblock

AYON EPSILON – “HXOS” (Greece) 5-star award
The Epsilon Monoblock immediately makes clear its wider power bandwidth with more speed, top-end air, detailed resolution and more articulate combined with an impactful bass. It has also a wonderful ability to unravel complex musical threads with grain less purity and surprising musical dynamics. This true balanced monoblock provides perhaps the finest KT88 / KT150 design performance available anywhere near its price.

When we carried Ayon Audio’s Crossfire Evo monoblock amplifier for review to my apartment on the fourth floor, my mind flooded with memories of a Germany reviewer that uses Ayon Audio’s Epsilon mono amplifiers for quite some time. He use them in both his mastering work while preparing vinyl re-issues and for reviewing purposes. His amplifiers use eight KT150 tubes each to produce sound. Attendees of the Audio Show 2014 in Warsaw (Poland) could find that out for themselves listening to how well these amps handled the mighty Dynaudio Platinum Evidence loudspeakers
